Leeds United eager to repay fans’ faith
11:25am Friday 27th September 2013 in Sport
BRIAN McDERMOTT is optimistic Leeds United can repay their fans’ backing by turning the disappointment of cup defeat into Championship delight.
United, unlucky to lose 2-0 in the Capital One Cup third round at Newcastle on Wednesday night, go to Millwall in the league tomorrow.
“We’ll dust ourselves down and go again,” said boss McDermott.
“That game was never going to be easy. We gave a good account of ourselves and if we could have got that first goal, who knows what could have happened.
“Their first goal we should have done better and their second was a great finish, but we had opportunities. We hit the bar, and we had a definite penalty (not given).”
About 6,000 Leeds supporters made the trip up the A1, and McDermott said: “The crowd were unbelievable. Their support was fantastic. I said at the end we have to give them something because they deserve something.”
